The People Speaking to Donald Trump

This is the first piece of a media art installation that we are planning right now. It is a receipt printer printing a number of live tweets with the query to:realdonaldtrump. A specific amount of tweets are fetched in real time by a java applet (coded by Rahul, thanks!) and sent as simple text to an EPSON TM-T88-IV printer. Watch the video:

The final installation will consist of ten or more printers that print different search queries, ideally running for days or weeks while the paper is piling up around the printers.

This will then be part of our next media art exhibition. Currently we looking for backers that help us to fund the show (mainly hardware and location costs). If you are interested in supporting our work, you can become our patron on or get in touch with us here.
